    thanks all for the comments. Elliott, yes, Walden was a requirement of one of my high school lit classes as well. Only somewhat later in life though did I really start to appreciate its meaning. This little pond has always reminded me of the work.

    dk, thanks for this entry and reference to walden. i'm really surprised that it didn't do much better.
walden was required reading in my high school literature class. i think i had attention deficit problems and hated reading.... thank goodness for 'cliff notes' (sort of the precursor of the whole '... for dummies' booklets.) my literature teacher really knew about transcendentalism and tried hard to get through to us. he was a runner and you could see him on the street or on the track at the field house early in the morning when no one was around. it took me a few years to 'get it', and yes while running. i could find that place of solitude.
thanks for the memories.

    Gosh! I can 'feel the water,' 'feel the solitude,' and 'smell the trees.' Wonderful picture!

    Looks like a place where one could find solitude, though it lacks a point of focus.

    Looks like a good spot to get away from it all.

    Beautiful landscape, but it seems to lack focus. Maybe if the goose was more prominently placed (of course you did not have control over that!)
